nakurnjak

Nakurnjak is a traditional accessory or a piece of clothing for a man`s private parts.

Men in Lika used to wear it during very cold winters when they would go to the forest to get some wood. Back then, before wedding girls made Nakurnjak`s for their future husbands, but they couldn’t know the size, so the groom’s siblings told them the approximate size!

It was also worn by a horseman to make horseback riding more comfortable. Nakurnjak is made of domestic wool and you can still buy it as a very special and authentic souvenir in Lika.
